64mm Freewing Lippisch P.15 - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FJ11011P

The Wright Brothers, Kelly Johnson, Willy Messerschmitt, Igor Sikorsky, R.J. Mitchell, Burt Rutan.  Not every contributor to aviation history has enjoyed the same notoriety as these innovators, but Motion RC and Freewing are proud to celebrate the engineer Alexander Lippisch, by producing the world’s first and only Lippisch P.15 flying wing concept jet!  Envisioned by Lippisch in 1944 as a jet powered version of his innovative rocket propelled Me-163 Komet, the P.15 would have taken the Komet concept even further, utilizing a blend of all-new and reused parts from the He-162 and Bf-109.  Repurposing the Bf-109’s landing gear allowed the P.15 to take off and land conventionally, compared to the rocket sled and skid landed Me-163.  Optimized for affordability and easy flight behavior, our intent in developing Freewing’s 64mm ParkJet series also seeks to illuminate rare and overlooked aircraft, and the P.15 is our first in this effort!  Join us in celebrating Alexander Lippisch and his innovative P.15 flying wing!

The Freewing 64mm P.15 continues the ParkJet series following the incredibly popular F-8 Crusader and F-105 Thunderchief.  After two American fighter jets, we’re changing things up to spotlight the excellent characteristics of an Axis-designed flying wing from the Second World War.  Compared to the F-8 and F-105, the P.15 is even more stable, more potentially acrobatic, and more efficient.  In ideal conditions, its low wing loading can allow for 50% longer flight times on the same battery with throttle management.  Aside from having a very low stall speed which will appeal to beginner pilots looking to fly slower and learn to fly an EDF, the P.15 also has lots of high speed potential for advanced pilots who are more comfortable with lighting fast rolls, snaps, and tumbles!  The cockpit has even been designed to accommodate a micro FPV camera, or for recording your flight with a standalone camera such as the RunCam or Mobius.  We are thrilled with the wide flight envelope of this model and its perfect marriage balancing fidelity to a scale jet’s appearance and an RC flying wing’s all-around “easy factor”.

For novice pilots wanting to learn how an EDF jet handles versus a propeller driven model aircraft of a similar size, the Freewing 64mm P.15 makes an ideal first hand launch EDF.  Assembly is straightforward, and uses only two servos to minimize weight, complexity, and cost.  Like the F-8 Crusader and F-105D Thunderchief, the Lippisch P.15 is is configured to be flown using a radio that supports Elevon mixing.  The battery bay can also accommodate a small gyro for additional stabilization.  We recommend the manual’s Low Rate throws for your maiden flight.  The roll rate can be very quick on High Rate, so the contrast between the light gray underside and the dark green camouflage upperside helps with orientation!

Powered by an efficient 64mm 5 blade EDF fan unit, 30A ESC and 2627-4500kv brushless outrunner motor, the Freewing 64mm P.15 Thunderchief reaches a top speed of 116kph/72mph using a single inexpensive Admiral 3S 1000 mAh - 2200 mAh lipo battery with XT60 connector.  While designed with simplified flight control surfaces and intended for hand launches and belly landing on grass runways, an optional landing gear set is sold separately for steerable operation on paved runways.

The Lippisch P.15 has never been modeled in foam PNP before, and we know you’ll be as pleased as we are with how this model flies.  Own this rare model today!

Über-Fun!

This is a fun little plane! It is quite fast, yet efficient. Pilot Ryan wasn't kidding when he said you can get longer flights out this over the other 64mm. The wing size makes it quite efficient. And it sounds really cool. It is much more twitchy than the other 64mm planes, however. I dialled the throws and rates WAY back from the recommendations in manual. Be cautious on the maiden. My nervous fingers almost grounded me a few times. Now that I have figured out the settings most appropriate for me, I am having a blast with this plane. And it is easy to hand launch due to the light wing loading. I highly recommend this plane!

P15

Flown it 3 times now. Flys good. Cracking along mold seam. Reinforcing forward hull and adding fpv on board. I would recommend this. 2nd or maybe 3rd plane., for flying rc aircraft.

Great Little EDF...!!!

The Freewing Lippisch P.15 is my second 64mm EDF. Lippy has a very wide flight envelope, is very agile in flight and glides well with power off. The flat underside of the fuselage makes for controlled and smooth touch downs, even on longish grass. I fly mine with 3S 1300mAh, 3S 1600mAh and 3S 1800mAh LIPOs and flight times are between five and six minutes. I covered the cheater holes with thin fly screen mesh. Freewing and Motion RC did an excellent job with this model.

So much fun!

What a neat little plane. I wanted my first EDF jet to be scale and have an authentic sound so I purchased this one with the motion rc 4s 12 blade set up. It took some carving the fuse out to fit the front of the 12 blade fan set up since I could not get the front ****** off the housing, but all in all, was able to fit it in barely. I would like to see the 12 blade set up sold with this ****** not attached so that it will slide right in this model. I fly it with a 1300 mah 4s and it flies and sounds fantastic! - However, the flight time is very limited with this set up. I will be searching for a higher mah battery the same physical size as the thunder power rampage I am using currently. Great fun! Thanks Motion!

I like it!

This is my first EDF and it's really a blast to fly! It's small, fast and sounds cool! I had to repaint it because there is no way I would be able to keep orientation with the stock color scheme. My high rates are the low rates in the manual. My low rates 40aileron/60/elevator with 35% expo. I also mixed in a little elevator on the gear switch of my DX6i for launching (important). Build quality is very good on this model.

A thrill to fly, but difficult to control

I’ve had two of these and I’m on my 3rd fuesage. I have flown it several times and crashed it other times. The Admiral receiver recommended with it was a huge disappointment. It’s set up to have self leveling for panic recovery. If you get that to work, you’re better than me. If you’ve flown other EDFs and want a challenge, this is a good plane for you.
